New Show Announcement – Johnston, RI

Hi Everyone,

This show has been POSTPONED. We will have a new date for you all soon.

Due to studio scheduling commitments, we are forced to give you a new date.

A new DFH album is on the way this summer and new dates will follow. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

See you soon.

On Saturday May 18th we are teaming up with our friends at Strings to bring you all a FREE show.

You’ve supported us for years and a free hometown show like the old days is the least we can do to say ‘thank Yyou’.

We will be debuting some new material from our forthcoming album. So come be the first to hear some new music.

See you then!
